We went here for my brothers in law birthday. I had not been in a while but this is still the best place for sushi and sashimi in Leicester. Definitely worth a visit and their Katsu curry is amazing (along with the warm sake).

My husband and I visited this place after fancying some Japanese food. The food we ate was ok.... we shared a vegetarian mixed platter as a starter and although everything tasted really good we thought that it didn’t really warrant the £15 price tag. I...More
